TMC HOME

Ministries are at the center of TMC church life.

Gathering for worship is TMC’s primary ministry. Other ministries are determined by the interests and gifting of TMC members and attenders. Each ministry usually requires a TMC “champion” to lead it. Ministries are in English, Japanese, Chinese, or a combination of those languages.

WORSHIP
…is TMC’s core ministry. Joint English/Japanese worship services are on the first and third Sundays of the month. On the remaining Sundays, English and Japanese worship services meet separately. See Sundays menu item for further information.
CHINESE FELLOWSHIP
…meets one Sunday afternoon a month for Bible study, prayer, and fellowship. TMC hopes to eventually add a Chinese language (Mandarin) worship service to our current English and Japanese language worship services. TMC’s Chinese Fellowship apprentice also live streams the annual summer Hong Kong Bible Conference at TMC.
SMALL GROUPS
…meet twice a month to discuss the sermon from that Sunday using discussion questions prepared by the preacher. Currently TMC has one Japanese and two English small groups.
PRAYER MEETINGS
…are held weekly in English and Japanese, usually for about one hour. The focus is on praying for one another and TMC. Prayer items from TMC members and attenders are compiled monthly in English.
BIBLE STUDIES
TMC staff lead four Bible studies in Japanese and one in English.
CHILDREN
…and their parents enjoy a Bible story and craft at a monthly Wakuwaku Family Time in English and Japanese.
LADIES
…connect in English through a monthly newsletter that includes a short Bible devotional and one lady’s testimony, and through a social media group.
YOUNG ADULTS
…gather monthly for games and a Bible centered study/discussion in English. Young adults are under the age of 40.
